It certainly hasn't felt like Spring too much, but hopefully the announcement of an annual seasonal event will help sway things in the right direction.

The Berkshire Mall Carnival will be returning to Lanesborough from May 3 through May 13. It is put on by Midway by Gillette Shows and is sponsored by the Lanesborough Police Association.

As always, the carnival will feature exciting rides, fun games and great food -- including fried dough, french fries, pizza, hot sausage, deep fried Oreos, hot dogs, cotton candy, caramel apples, Sno Cones and much more.

Regular priced tickets are $1.00 each, 22 for $20.00 or 55 for $50.00. There will also be a number of opportunities to take advantage of POP'S Wristband hours, which will be $15.00. Those dates and hours are below:
